Indeed, the moolah is a thing of which any self-respecting revenue seeking businessman is more than somewhat fond. And let it not be said that such a man should abandon VHF, even if he does have to...

You must have missed the smiley face.
That suggestion was purely in jest.

So, is WFSB in the NYC DMA, or is it in the Hartford, CT DMA?
